“The killing excites them, though they would never admit to it. They sit back to back at their control panels, squinting at black and white screens. On those tiny monitors it looks like nothing more significant than crushing a bug. And yet they know it is more.”
Five very short stories, originally written for Archipelago, appear in Long Exposure magazine, illustrated with some gorgeous artwork from Aaron Morgan. If you like drones, monsters, or awkward evenings out with ambulance personnel, you can pick up a copy of the full issue on the Long Exposure website.
